    I don't see a photo in your post. However, no one can tell you from a nipple photo exactly when your cat will give birth. Most cats will give birth between 63-67 days from the first mating, although some will go up to 70 days. If your cat is 9 weeks pregnant, she could give birth any time and you will just have to wait and see!

    Are you able to keep mom 100% inside now? She'll need to stay in through delivery and raising the kittens. You can set a spay appointment for 8 weeks after delivery, and it would be safe for her to go out after she is healed.

    At 9 weeks, she is very close. Have you noticed any behavioral changes, nesting, decreased appetite, or anything else? Does she have any discharge or milk production?

    Did you felt the kittens move? Do you feel them now? Has she "dropped", ie suddenly looks less obvious highpreg?

    Hi Stefan

    She was shaved to confirm her pregnancy when I look from above her she doesn't resemble a football now if that's what you mean. I did feel them move but now can't her stomach is more solid too, I obviously only pressed really gently on it though.

    OK, so she has dropped, and the kittens are more squizzed there in their birthings postitions. That is why you dont feel them move as easily now.
    So its near now, a couple of days at most, perhaps even just hours.

    Prepare as well you can, and its just to wait, as earlier said.

    The decreased appetite is typical as delivery approaches, and owners typically notice this anywhere from a few hours before birth to a few days. In any case, not too long. The purring could be her calming herself down before the big event.

    Any moment now! It's almost impossible to pinpoint exactly when, but she has all the signs of being very close. just observe her and intervene if she gets too tired to properly clean teh kittens off. Stimulate them by rubbing with a clean cloth and remove any membranes from around their face and nose. As long as she is calm and not in obvious distress while giving birth, everything is OK. There can be quite a gap between babies too, once again look for distress to indicate something is wrong. All the luck, and keep us posted!

    I took Muka to the vets today and he said he could feel sticky stuff for from hwr nipoles does that mean she's close please? He took an X-ray of her last Monday and said she was having 5 or 6 kittens poor fur baby . This is the latest photo of her too. Plus I have noticed dried milk on her nipples too her stomach seems really hard at the sides and at the bottom too but her nipples are still only tiny.
